Jessie Vargas will also face TBA at 154 pounds

Cecilia Braekhus v Aleksandra Magdziak-Lopes

The DAZN blockbuster originally planned for April 6th is now set for April 26th in Los Angeles, according to The Ring. Srisaket Sor Rungvisai will rematch Juan Francisco Estrada in the main event, with super bantamweight champions Daniel Roman and TJ Doheny attempting to unify in the co-feature and Jessie Vargas making his 154-pound debut earlier on the card.

If this does indeed come to fruition, the top two fights alone make it the most stacked card of 2019 thus far. Sor Rungvisai (47-4-1, 41 KO) and Estrada (38-3, 26 KO) put on a terrific show last year and look poised to be every bit as entertaining the second time around. Roman (26-2-1, 10 KO) is likewise quality television despite the paucity of KO’s on his record, while Doheny (21-0, 15 KO) recently proved he’s a legitimate champion with a finish of Ryohei Takahashi in his first title defense last month.

As far as Vargas (28-2-2, 10 KO), the Kell Brook fight is apparently dead. There’s also no word yet as to whether Kal Yafai, who was linked to the card when it was first announced, is still slated to appear.
